BigMemory Go is Terracotta’s free version of the BigMemory Max application that allows in-memory database up to 32GB on your application server. BigMemory Max can run across multiple servers to scale as large as you need. to BigMemory Go leverages the existing industry standard open source API giving you an easy migration from Ehcache to BigMemory. BigMemory Max can handle TB and PB of data in RAM across servers.
“Ehcache, which Terracotta has estimated to have over 500,000 users, has a limit on the amount of material of that can be stored in memory, due to the limits of Java itself. Most Java applications have a limit of about 4GB to 6GB that can be stored in working memory without significant tuning. BigMemory Go will give Java-based enterprise applications much more room to store data in memory. Terracotta is betting that, over time, enterprise applications will grow so large that they will need to store data across the memory of multiple servers and will need the added performance of BigMemory Max.”
BigMemory Go has an API that can offer search, management and export of data.
